On the 10th of July, Linus Torvalds, the founder of Linux, released a statement announcing the initial candidate version of Linux 6.5.
This release marks the point at which the new feature code for this version has been frozen. Linux 6.5 offers a range of improvements, including the introduction of a new system call called cachestat(), the handling of UEFI unaccepted memory, preliminary support for Intel Lunar Lake audio and USB4 v2, the deprecation of the SLAB allocator, support for SMT and SIMD/Vector, overclocking support for AMD RDNA3 graphics cards, enhancements for the Btrfs file system, load balancing optimization for Intel hybrid CPUs, and more.
It’s worth noting that the Bcachefs file system has not been included in the Linux 6.5 release. In his announcement, Torvalds remarked that Linux 6.5 is not particularly noteworthy or unusual.
However, he did mention that he had a feeling that this version may be delayed, not due to any specific issues, but because of something related to Europeans.
He also revealed that he plans to take a vacation in May, but he added that everything will depend on the development of the situation.
